Part of paper stuck in ear
Long ago a piece of paper got stuck in left ear. Few months ago, i consulted a doctor. His assistant removed wax from ear and i was prescribed some medicines. i thought small piece of paper may have melted during long time and absorbed into the wax. However now i am feeling that the piece of paper is still there deep within. Is there any way to examine and remove it without using syringing. i don't want syringing as i doubt it will be effective. Moreover i am also having tinnitus.

It is unlikely that piece of paper can stay inside the ear after long term as it will get disintegrated. If you want confirmation then oto endoscopic examination can be done and your ear canal with ear drum can cleanly be visualized. Piece of paper can easily be removed using forceps
Next Steps
Consult nearby ENT specialist for confirmation of diagnosis and appropriate treatment if required
